“HEART OF TURTLE ISLAND: THE NIAGARA ESCARPMENT”+ “Books That Heal”
Environmental treasures, Indigenousand settler communities of the Niagara Escarpment UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and an in-depth look at Mark Zelinski’s 35-year worldwide adventure culminating in his “Books That Heal Initiative”
Award-winning photographer and publisher Mark Zelinski presents a Power Point of photographs and stories from his ninth book “HEART OF TURTLE ISLAND: THE NIAGARA ESCARPMENT”. The images bring exquisite focus to the environmental treasures of the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, celebrating the diverse Indigenous and settler communities that thrive along its rugged, curving path. Its aquifers and ecosystems support hundreds of at-risk species that coexist alongside the most densely populated and heavily developed region in Canada.
Also included in this presentation, images and travel/cultural stories and experiences from Mark’s 80-country BOOKS THAT HEAL Initiative.
Mark Zelinski has donated 7,000 copies of his three photography books, “Untitled”, “From the Field” and “One Small Flame” to poor children and 100 charities around the world. The books contain few words – “Untitled“ has none – as many of the recipients are illiterate, but feature the universal language of Zelinski’s photographs, images from his travels to 70 countries over the last 35 years. He calls them his global family albums.
